How we work

We write detailed proposals and quotations and carry out project planning to ensure we can meet delivery times and when its a pressing deadline that are on time and on budget.
As artists we always create the medical illustrations as drawn from scratch drafts and storyboards. Starting our as pencil sketches so that they can be tailored and unique to each project and importantly the communication message. We do this by referring to the clients brief to ensure the medical visuals meet the individual project requirements.
Over the years our bank of existing illustrations has grown so we can supply illustrations for immediate licensing or we can adapt existing illustrations if possible to suit a clients brief to meet those tight deadlines and budgets. We can also mix and match and use some custom illustrations along with stock imagery.
Our process is we make full use of our fully equipped medical illustration studio providing the technical backup for each project, with secure servers for saving patient files and high resolution scanning and printing equipment. We have a library of reference and research material with anatomical models that we can refer to.
